Daniel Lee Chi-wo returned to racing prominence when he led the Peugeot team to victory in the men's elite Endurothon Team Challenge at the Hong Kong Sports Institute. Lee, Asia's number one triathlete, had been absent from the sport lately. The Peugeot team won the event in seven hours, 20 minutes. Lee and teammates Alvin Tang Kin-man, Wan Dali and Rob Joy were 22 minutes faster than second-placed Saucony, who were led by triathlete Wan Shue-wah. 'We did extremely well to win, considering we were racing with four athletes compared with six for Saucony,' said 21-year-old Lee. Sixteen teams competed in the ironman race, which began with a 3.8-kilometre swim followed by a 180-kilometre bike ride and a 42.5-kilometre marathon. Lee said the endurothon was good training for him as he targets the 2000 Olympics. 'Because we are co-operating as a team, it is less physically demanding and more fun. And because we are interchanging, we can take a rest between relays,' he said. Lee will next compete in the first leg of the World Cup series to be held in Ishigaki, Japan in April.
